Save Show?

Recommended Posts

Ok, it sounds like a daft question... but when i try to save a show, i cant save locally to the console. If i insert a flash drive, the "device" is shown, but when there is no flash drive i get a <no destination device> message. The same goes for loading a show, when i go to the load page, I only get files if a flash drive is inserted... nothing is shown when the drive is removed.

 

I thought there should be an option to save locally?

The desk implicitly saves the show internally all of the time, you don't need to do this manually. The Save function is just to save to a USB stick if you want to - you don't have to (although this is wise!).

The desk can only hold one (the current) show. There is no internal "USB drive" for saving multiple shows inside the desk. You need to use USB stick for that.

Thanks for the reply... Its a shame you cant save multiple shows to the console. It would be a useful feature for venues that may have 2 or 3 regular "shows" to recall directly from the desk rather than a flash drive...

You might be able to get them to file an enhancement request for this - although I've not know this feature on any Zero88 console. It depends on how much non-volatile storage they have on the board - I think they're using some relatively expensive (hence relatively small) FeRAM rather than flash for the ongoing active show image. I think there's a good lump of flash in there too so maybe it's feasible to retain multiple show images as you suggest. Anyway, one for the Z88 guys to comment on rather than me blindly reverse-engineering their product!

Hope your FLX is otherwise treating you well!

Hello,

As Kevin says, no internal storage on ZerOS consoles, other than the current show file and library. 

We do occasionally get requests for this. However the benefit of saving externally, means your show is safe even if the console is damaged. Users that have a few default show files for their console, sometimes use a small stubby “fit” USB stick in one of the side/spare USB ports, so there’s no risk of the USB getting snapped if the console is moved. This allows for multiple show files to be stored - and allows for easy show file editing on Phantom. 

All the best,

Edward
